When most people hear "vintage", they think of the 1950s. But blogger and fellow-giant Gracey gave me a dress that looks back even further. It evokes the styles of the 1940s.
I think the dress is pretty. And if we're going back to that period, let's do it right -- seamed stockings!
What a lovely gift to receive, it's a beautiful dress, the colour is wonderful and you look so glam Ally! A hat and short gloves would be the icing on the cake xReplyDelete
This dress is timeless, a classic, and the colour really pops.ReplyDelete
So classic and beautiful. It looks gorgeous on you Ally...like it was made for you!ReplyDelete
Seamed stockings! Wow!ReplyDelete
What a gorgeous colour and dress on you. So ladylike.
Beautiful, Ally. And yes--seamed stockings are so effortlessly chic, aren't they? Gorgeous color on you!ReplyDelete
That chartreuse colour is amazing on you! What a gorgeous dress!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous dress!! 40s styles actually fit me quite well!! The stockings are really lovely!ReplyDelete
You did perfect and I can see in your smile how much you enjoyed wearing this look, specially because of the stockings :)ReplyDelete
I am loving everything about this! Those seamed stockings are a brilliant addition.ReplyDelete
It is beautiful!!! I really like it!!!!ReplyDelete
Got to love vintage!ReplyDelete
This is simply stunning on you.ReplyDelete
Jaw-droppingly pretty! Love this color and silhouette on you (I adore the 40's dresses too). xoxReplyDelete
Gorgeous dress! You really pull off a difficult color very well. And kudos on fitting into it--I have the hardest time finding vintage clothes that work with my waist!ReplyDelete
Also, I got the book you sent in the mail and I can't wait to dive in! It's a fascinating topic and one that's been on my mind a lot lately, as I've recently dove headfirst into the wonderful world of makeup obsession :)
Yes this dress has a very 40s feel to it. And love the color it looks great on you. I wish they made more dresses today with this hem length.ReplyDelete
40's suit you! So pretty!ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh that's my fave color!! I loooove that style of dress. I would totally wear seamed stockings if it wasn't guaranteed I'd get a run before I even leave the house.ReplyDelete
This dress is GORGEOUS on you! I love the color! And pairing it with the seamed stockings looks fantastic! All around fabulous. :)ReplyDelete
Love those stockings and that green is SUCH a great color! It works really well on you.ReplyDelete
Ooohh, chartreuse! Now there's a fantastic colour that we don't see anywhere near enough these days. I love when you delve into the past for your wardrobe inspiration and think you really knocked it out of the ballpark with this classic look, Ally.ReplyDelete
Happy Friday wishes,
*PS* Seamed stockings for the win always!
The stockings make it. I love the midi-length dresses of the 30s and 40s fashion. That unique shape between the 20s flapper and the 50s housewife.ReplyDelete
You look very nice in this color and I think it's a tough one to do because it has a lot of yellow in it. The pleats in the front are such a nice detail and flatter your figure.ReplyDelete
I think of green as a neutral. It looks great with all other colors found in nature. Maybe A vibrant jacket over it in cooler weather?
Love everything about this outfit! You look stylish and super comfortable in it and of course the heels and seamed stockings just finish it off perfectly!!!ReplyDelete
